  • Employees must provide a letter from their old institution releasing the material/equipment and an authorized department representative must provide a letter accepting materials/equipment that is being moved. These letters should be attached to the requisition request.
  • If the USF Department is covering the cost, Departments should create a requisition, generate a purchase order and direct pay the moving companies for the employee’s moving expenses.  This activity is coordinated through Procurement Services.
  • Department’s should coordinate with Facilities Management – specifically Environmental Health & Safety for hazardous material inventory and management.
  • At the completion of the move, a list of assets should be provided to USF Asset Management for property tagging.
